Location: Pomona, CA
Shape: Oval
Duration: 5 secs
Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object
fast moving white/yellow oval object over inland empire

I was looking out my window facing south on 02/05/11 at 17:41:00 (I jotted time/date after the event) enjoying the sunset, when I saw a white/yellow oval shaped object moving from west to east at 3 times the rate of civil air carriers. I knew immediately it was something Iíve never seen before. I jumped up, mouth open, eyes wide, fully understanding this was my 1st UFO sighting.

I live just south of the San Gabriel Mountains and just west of San Jacinto Peak. From my location it appeared to be coming from Los Angeles area heading east bound towards Palm Springs, Salton Sea area at appx. 4000 ft. What I find interesting and validates my own sighting is the posted sighting in Indio which occurred the same day (02/05/11) with a reported time at 17:35:00. BTW Indio CA is 90 miles east, bearing 103 of my location. Coincidence? Iím ex military/FAA air controller.
